Dear Ms. Tacket,

In 1608 the first Germans arrived in America aboard the ship Mary and Margaret to settle in Jamestown.  These first Germans were glassmakers and carpenters, and they were followed by many more immigrants from Germany.

In the last census the German-Americans were the largest ethnic group in the United States.  One in four Americans has claimed German ancestry.

The 400th anniversary the first arrival of Germans in Jamestown occurs in 2008.  Please consider issuing a commemorative stamp for this occasion.

Thank you for your consideration,
